How to muffle your air tools

My review of the Ingersoll Rand’s Edge Series 170G:

  • Lots of torque
  • High RPM
  • Will call dogs from miles around(its fucken loud)

This air ratchet is loud so lets fix that!


Take a Scotch-Brite pad aka dish scrubber, cut a little peice off of it


Cram the cut piece into the vent of the ratchet.

Voila, much quieter now and still has quite a bit of power !
